what will happen

Hey guys. I was wondering if a pet pygmy falcon and my little Alley would get along together or not. Pygmy falcon disruption.

Its a raptor for those how don't know.

Its 20 cm tall.

It eats meat.

It has a black top and a white botem
red spots around the eye

They need gloves if you want them tame.
If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated

Kind regards bird boy



my little Alley x

No no no no no no no. I keep raptors and mine, although next to the other aviaries, can't see the other birds. It's unfair for a prey species to be exposed to a predator, causing unnecessary stress, and a predator being teased by prey

I totally agree with Daisy.
Your Alley had a bad time with her former owner. Please don't buy a predator as a companion for her!

The raptor will have Alley for dinner if he/she can. It's in their nature.

What everyone else said Falcons eat other birds and parrots, in the wild, are a prey species, hunted by birds of prey and other predators. It could very well cause Alley distress just to be able to see/hear a falcon around,make him nervous or fearful. Alley could severely injure the falcon defending himself, and the falcon could severely injure Alley if it saw Alley as prey.

If you were to get one as a pet, I would house it outside or in another section of the house away from Alley. It's always dangerous to have predator and prey species in the same house, whether its dogs, cats, or birds of prey. The key is making sure you can keep them both separate and safe

I plan on getting my license and having falcons as well, but we will have an outdoor aviary for them to keep them separate from my parrots; keeps things safer and both species calmer, I think.

I wouldn't do it, it might put alley at risk of getting seriously hurt. Something to really think about. We have 3 pups, and 3 birds, when the birds are out for playing, the pups are up, and when the birds, are safely secure, the pups are running around in the house, or sleeping on a bed or couch one but we never have both out at the same time. I just don't want to take chances with my birds. That sounds like a big risk. Plus if alley is still getting well, you would want to wait to get another bird until she is fully well and healthy, so stuff doesn't spread.

Are you serious? Like, seriously? This feels like trolling to me...

Any type of Raptor, even a tiny one, will try to kill your Parrot....
